Day 42 on Captiva

Early coffee and pastries today.  Yesterday I began packing and this morning, I continued packing for our return home.  We did load a few things in the car objective is to carry something down each time we go down the steps so that we do not have to load everything at one time. I hope to have everything loaded by this evening before dark except for Al's computer, toiletries, food items and food for the trip.

We had BLT's for lunch with deviled eggs and chips. This we had with two remaining Blue Moons and orange wedges.  We headed for the beach about was another beautiful day in the Hi 80's but with a nice breeze.  The last 2 days have been great for beach time.  No dolphins spotted today but a lot of boat traffic and people on the beach and in the water.  I am sharing a photo of the Thriller,
Sanibel and Captiva Island's exciting boat tour, which comes by daily around 3:00. 
  Today, a group of Terns joined the Willets and Gulls on the beach.
This gull said Good-bye to us before we left the beach.
We pretty much finished packing everything in the car before having dinner and did what we needed to do in the rental before leaving.  For our last night, we returned to the Lazy Flamingo for our last supper of Fresh Oysters on the half shell, an order of Peel n Eat Shrimp, and Fried Oysters with spicy French Fries.   We had to wait for seats at the bar when we arrived at 5:30 but the crowd cleared out and there was plenty of seats.

We finished dinner in time to go to the beach for the sunset as shown below:

This was a great day for our final day of our stay in Captiva.
